New Ripmax F-16


Anyone see the new F-16 at Ripmax? I don't think it is out yet but it looks pretty cool. It lists the weight at 250g and suggests micro servers (<9g).

You can see it at: http://www.ripmax.com/FS_AircraftEPScaleSport.html

It is the second F-16 link- not the ducted fan model. (will try attaching a picture)

great! You know of anywhere to get one other than Ripmax?(I am in the US). Is it easily assembled? Is seems it is very light but I would imagine it is probably no slow flyer. Let us know how your flights go. See ya.

Actually they are both pushers, the link you attached are F-18 Hornet copies, And the Ripmax is a f-16 Falcon and the F-18 is a speed 400 motor. Looked at these a while back but not into the fast and furious flyin just yet.

I think the F-18 has two vertical fins.

I stand corrected, they are both pushers. I didn't click past the Kyosho F-16.

The Robbe Hunter (F-16 style) is for Speed 400 pusher, the Ripmax (Scorpio) F-16 is for Speed 300. Jürgen
P.S.: Which one is better? I guess the Mpx Twin-Jet beats both of them.

@Jürgen ,
have you been sponsored by MPX ???? You canīt compare a tiny Speed 300 F-16 with a Twin Jet !!!! I have flown the F-16 this weekend , and i can tell you , this is the fastest Speed 300 Modell Iīve ever flown and the shape is just fantastic ,she looks great ***Try it , and you will think different about your Recycling Styro TJ

@Trecker: How many other Speed 300 direct drive models have you flown before? The only other model with Speed 300 pusher I have flown was a depron delta and it was pretty fast. Jürgen
